Four Ophones

A loopaholic, super-social, globetrotting, and extremely interactive sound installation by Unsworn and You.

Four Ophones

Four Ophones is an invitation and an unwritten score for a composition that lasts as long as the exhibition does. You and other visitors take part as audience, musicians, and co-composers. No one knows what will happen or how it will sound. Be prepared for everything from subtle interference etudes, to collaborative chanting and big, bad rhythm orgies.

How does it work?

An ophone is a loudspeaker with an attached telephone receiver. When an ophonist has recorded a sound into an ophone, it is repeated infinitely until another sound is recorded into the same ophone.
